Our Team

Ben Zimmer

Ben is not your average computer geek. In addition to being President of Enable Education, he has spent over twenty years in software development, engaging a variety of learners in applied technology. His enthusiasm for teaching and clear commitment to new and innovative ideas has led him to champion the creation of online resources for thinkers of all ages. This naturally led to the development of ThinkScape, Enable’s ground breaking learning platform.

““Simply stated, our mission is to revolutionize education. I truly believe this can be realized by combining innovative educational technology with amazing instructional design. It’s thrilling to me to put our clients on the cutting edge of new approaches and methodologies.””

Amy Leask

Amy is living proof that you can do something good with a philosophy degree (or two, in her case). She is delighted to combine her love of ideas with more than ten years as an educator, curriculum developer, and children’s media producer. Amy firmly believes that great thinkers come in all sizes, and is committed to helping people see the power of their own ideas.

“There’s no such thing as a typical learner anymore, or a typical educator. It’s our privilege and pleasure to help teachers and trainers find new and innovative ways to engage their audiences.”

Matt Paterson

Before jumping into the wide world of educational development, Matt was a programmer for more than five years. Having studied Nanoengineering, he draws from his programming, science, and engineering experiences as he and his team defines, develops, and delivers training & education material for a range of clients with Enable Education.

“I’m excited to be a part of enabling our clients’ success in 21st century learning, whether for the classroom, training room or boardroom.”

Octavian Ciubotariu

A connoisseur of all things tech, Octavian combines a curiosity for all kinds of technology with a ten year career creating different technologies and software for a wide range of industry applications. With an extensive background in robotics, automation and software development, he oversees all web framework and application development.
